I recall someone contributing a patch to do this, but I couldn't locate
it quickly.  Also, I have a long-standing to-do item to enhance --show
to be capable of doing this and more (also need optional quoting since
cracked passwords might contain colons).

Yes, this is easy to implement, but not exactly trivial.  Specifically,
partially-cracked passwords are a special case, and you need to decide
how you want to handle those.

The function to patch is ldr_show_pw_line() in loader.c.

Good luck!
